How many units is J1050? Is it "1" or "150"?
SuperCoder Posted 15 day(s) ago
HCPCS code J1050 states: Injection, medroxyprogesterone acetate, 1 mg (meaning: 1 mg= 1 unit).
The units of service for J1050 should reflect the number of milligrams injected.
Note: As per FDA, the recommended dose is 150 mg of Depo-Provera every 3 months (13 weeks) administered by deep, IM injection in the gluteal or deltoid muscle.
